Today the hydrogen comes from natural gas, so we don’t save anything in the way of CO2 emissions but there are any nitrogen oxide emissions (the smog gas). Tomorrow the hydrogen may come from solar and wind power. Does anyone think Toyota is making a serious mistake on betting on a hydrogen future for transportation ??

John Locke said: ‘Where the law ends, tyranny begins.’ I think it is time for some internal housecleaning within the Irish government.

You criticise this website and its owner but you visit regularly. Also do you not believe in freedom of speech? In my long career at Shell I have found many people from the US with such strange and draconian opinions. If you don’t like the website you are free get your information elsewhere.

If there is an accident (and sooner or later an accident will happen) the damage will be much larger than on a comparable site on shore.

In my view an accident resulting in a fire is inevitable. Especially because the focus of Shell’s project department is on planning and budget. Taking shortcuts on quality and safety, including the violation of international standards is not a problem for the Shell top management. On a project like the Prelude the pressure on delivering on time will be enormous, this will effect the quality and therefore increase the risk.

A second issue is operational errors leading to fires. The question is not if it will happen, but when it will happen. Just analyse the number of fires on a on- shore Shell site! Keep in mind that the real number will be higher, because Shell is doing it’s utmost best to hide and downplay any kind of negative publicity.
